This weekend we went on a four day vacation to Sandusky, Ohio for the Bloggy Conference. Well, I went to the conference. David and the kids enjoyed everything Cedar Point and Hotel Breakers had to offer. I’ll be writing about all that in a different post because I have a lot to share. Coming back… Continue reading We need a vacation from our vacation.
Did you know I am also a contributor on Little Lake County, a hyper-local website for Lake County, Illinois? This week I shared some local yarn shops to go check out. I love to knit. Crocheting and I have a love/hate relationship. Despite the feelings I have for needlework, I love myself a good yarn shop. Fun… Continue reading Writings
There’s something about the youngest starting to to go school for the first time. It’s something else when they get to go on the bus and you don’t get to walk them into their classroom for the first day.

It could be the fact that I’m turning 30 next year and she passed away at that age. Or it’s the fact that the kids are… Continue reading 18 Years After Death
Gabriel: Knock Knock. Mom and Dad: Who’s there? Gabriel: Chicken. Mom and Dad: Chicken who? Gabriel: Chickens farting all the time. Mom: Do chickens really fart? Let me google it. Spoiler alert: They do but by burping. Learn something new every day. I took the kids to Six Flags Hurrican Harbor early. I had a… Continue reading Do Chickens Fart and Other Musings | Daily Life

David, the boys and my cousin had fun at the McHenry County Fair while I got a mommy morning out with cousin Sarah. Looks like the kids had a ton of fun even though it was pretty hot yesterday. Thank you so much for making this video, David. Also, thank you for the new intro!… Continue reading We Went to the McHenry County Fair!
Back when David and I were little squirts we watched Pokemon when it first came out. We both played the video game when it was only in black and white on the Game Boy. He was bigger on collecting the cards, I didn’t as much since it was an expensive hobby. When we found out… Continue reading We Pokemon Go.
